its got nothing to do with the other ST that used the same cover....an oversight that really bugs me !!!!!!!!!!!!!! theres hundreds of illustrations that could have been used and the mag reuses the same one...and thus causes confusionn like Lawrence has....for the record the older game is a brilliant berg wargame on the actual battle of Hastings its one of my favs This is a larger scale campaign game.
PLAYED TODAY A BRILLIANT AND CUNNING GAME SYSTEM

Relatively simple but involving. A very good attempt to simulate a difficult period. The only problem - in the three games I've played so far, King Harold sits in London just waiting for the Normans - perhaps a rule could be added that would make the Norman invasion a surprise. At the moment it's more like Operation Seelowe.

Sort of an AH "Kingmaker" lite and that's not a bad thing. The game plays rather quickly, I found. Low counter density, and the large clearl printed counters are great for my (aging) eyes. Rules are fairly complete, especially given this is an S&T in-mag game. However, some counters are apparently missing, specifically the event chit that simulates the mercenary pretender Tostig.Overall, probably wouldn't buy it in a box, but a fun game nonetheless.

Rating after 1 four-player game. Enjoyable and entertaining; particularly liked the quasi-tactical combat system and the somewhat chaotic chit pull mechanism. Will play again but with an added victory condition that any player with the sole remaining king in Britain and with the highest feudal total wins a sudden death game if the king is crowned per the rules. This will encourage William not to skulk about in Normandy in the early part of the game and will give the other players the opportunity to win through the elimination of their rival pretenders to the throne.
Make sure you play with the revised rules and the errata (towns give a forage value of 2, not 1 as shown on the map). The battle board on the map is ridiculously small - we used the one from Columbia Games' Napoleon.

Is it different from the one designed by Richard Berg 20 years ago? The magazine cover looks the same. The former is a tactical-operational level simulation of the battle of Hastings. This one from Joseph Miranda is on the strategic conquest of England.

My rating is generous considering the flaws in the game, but I liked it and love the era.

This is a nice little game, that probably could need a few house rules. But as far as medieval strategic games go the choice is severely limited, so if you like the theme you could give this game a try.

Played once and liked it.
Actually you do not have much choice if you want to play a medieval area strategic or operational game.
You have to cope with some quirks, probably could use some house rules, but for a friendly game it is decent enough.

Very badly flawed unless some variant rules are adopted, but lots of nice touches, and a period and situation I really want to play,
